    Hi there,

    the message “Problem using PHP Sessions” appears when the plugin tries to redirect to PayPal.

    Do you know what could cause the problem?

    Thanks a lot for any help.

    Hi Scott,

    the temporary storage method was already on Cookies, I changed it to Sessions and now it works.

    Thanks for the support.

    Great, glad that helped!

    Hello, I have the same problem on a mac, on different browsers (Firefox, Chrome and Safari). I have tried everything: using wp-optimize, changing from Cookies to Sessions, changing Redirect Method from 1 to 2 and still no good. Please help!

    Exactly the same problem and changing the settings doesn’t help….

    @riowf – I just tested your form and it correctly redirected to PayPal for me.

    @za42 – What is the URL of the form on your site?

    Dear Scott thanks for the reply!
    Did you try it on a Mac? On the PC it runs smooth to me.

    Which is the best settings for the plugin to work?
    Method 1 for redirection and Cookies for the temporary storage method?
    Thank you again,

    Hi @riowf,

    I tested before on Mac, I just tested again now on Windows 10 Firefox – it works perfectly on both.

    There is no best setting, just whatever works for your site.


    Dear Scott,

    Sorry to bother you again, but unfortunately I am still gettin the problem randomly from different users on different machines and IP addresses.

    Please let me know if there is any procedure on the server side that I could do to prevent this? Thanks,

    Sorry for the delays.

    Yes, I managed to resolve this already.

    Thanks for checking though!
